Keegan celebrates a day of two halves

WHAT started as a tough day ended with a winner’s trophy for Wiltshire potter Keegan Reed.

Reed won only one frame out of nine in the group stages of the second leg of the Cuestars South of England Under-21 Silver Tour on home tables at Salisbury Snooker Club.

But he bounced back in the Plate competition for non-qualifiers and beat Gold player Connor Benzey (Eastleigh) in the final.

The Attic Life-sponsored event attracted a field of 37 across the three categories of Gold, Silver and Bronze.

The third legs of ten are at Jesters Snooker Club, Swindon, on Sunday, October 29.
